Chateau Haut Laulion Bordeaux 2015

Wines labelled as Bordeaux Superieur are a intended to be a step up and are made from approximately 10% of the grapes grown in the entire Bordeaux region. The entire region has about 111,000 hectares of vines, of which just over 11,000 are marked for producing Bordeaux Superieur wines – mostly red. This wine lives up to its name with ripe plush fruity flavours and softness with a fresh, lingering finish. - 4 Stars, Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer

Easy drinking from a great vintage. 2015 was a standout vintage throughout all the traditional French regions, including Burgundy, the Rhone and of course Bordeaux. While the top Chateau won’t be ready to drink for a few more years yet, those wines from lesser known estates like Chateau Haut Laulion are ready now. Give this one half an hour or so in a decanter to allow its true colours to shine and you won’t be disappointed. Notes of vanilla, blackberries and with a hint of oak, the tannins and acidity are noticeable but with a bit of time they balance out as a perfect mid-week quaffer. - 16/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel

A soft, supple Bordeaux with lovely round tannins and a good aromatic persistence. On the nose, ripe fruit, red fruit, notes of undergrowth. Ruby red in colour. Pairs well with red meat, game meats, cheese. Will cellar up to 8 years.
